But lately our marriage has kind of fallen off of our radars, in terms of something to put our time and energy into. His new job is great, but it's taking a lot of his energy. And Ethan's teething (when are they not teething!). And the other one million things that are just part of life, but that take up the last bit of energy every day. We're functioning in that "roommate/friend" mode that is so easy to fall into in marriage. Nothing is wrong per se, but things could be better.
So I'm trying to figure out easy ways to get the romance and fun back into our marriage. Things that don't require much time or money or energy, because we have little of any of those things left. I know this is important and that, other than our individual relationships with Christ, our marriage is the most important part of our lives and the foundation of our little family. And I'd really like to get things a little bit back on track before I get pregnant again, because we all know that that is NOT going to help the situation.
I think I'm going to dust off some of my Christian marriage books this afternoon if Ethan takes another nap and will see if I can come up with any ideas. But if anyone out there has any suggestions for me, I'd love to hear them.
